Challenging the definitions of love and morality
25 July 2004 | by (Tacoma) – See all my reviews

This story is controversial to say the least. Many people are automatically turned off by the topic of forbidden love, but I believe that this is a strength. How many stories ask you to re-evaluate your perceptions of life, love and morality? Don't let this aspect of the story turn you away. The animations are gorgeous and the story is solid. Everything is challenged. Heaven and Hell. Good and Evil. Love. A mature show with complicated morality.

I fell in love with Angel Sanctuary the first time that I say it. The only drawback is that it is not a movie and the one disc/tape leaves you with a major cliffhanger. However, if you enjoy this show, the manga form is now available at any major bookstore.
